Toronto’s Canon Theatre renamed the Ed Mirvish Theatre, 09/12/2011

The late ED MIRVISH, one of Canada’s best known showmen, will soon have his name up in lights.  The Canon Theatre – formerly the Pantages – is now officially the Ed Mirvish Theatre, honouring a man who saved the Royal Alexandra from demolition, built the Princess of Wales Theatre, founded Honest Ed’s department store and Mirvish Village, and contributed greatly to this city’s cultural scene.  <PHOTO – Ed Mirvish, by Gila Brand/2006>
